Just 10 mins drive from the mediaeval centre of Spoleto, this fabulous villa + Lodge, set in its own private 44 hectares of gorgeous countryside, is stunning !

Carlo Minotti, who created the original Spoleto Festival, spent his summers here !

The famous Carlo Minotti, he of 'the Festival of Two Worlds' fame, spent his holidays here, along with a host of other celebrities throughout the years, all hosted by the owners of this beautiful property.

Now, the owners have moved away and this grand house is available as a luxury holiday rental. This means that you, too, can follow in the footsteps of Andy Warhole, Brigit Bardot, Peter Sellers, Pavarotti and the many other friends that Minotti had visit, while he was here.

The Lodge, which is large, at the side of the villa, can be rented as an extension. It is NEVER rented independently of the villa. It has 2 double bedrooms, 1 large sitting room, 1 fully fitted kitchen/diner, 2 bathroms + 1 verandah.

Friend reunions and family gatherings.....

This large, spacious, comfortable house + Lodge is perfect for reunions of family and/or old friends.

A property with vast amounts of space, where everyone can be private when they want, but, with an enormous sitting/dining room, where everyone can congregate together. Indeed, it can seat up to 20 persons easily !

This grand house with Lodge has 2 separate kitchen/breakfast rooms, one with a dish washer, just off the enormous dining area and next to the outside patio, overlooking the pool.

Besides the large lap pool, there is a pergola with seating for 4 - 6 persons.

And, you can make as much noise as you like since all the land, as far as the eye can see and further, belongs to you, during your stay at Vallocchia Villa.

In a central location with easy access to all the Umbrian "hot spots" ! And, while you are here, the land, the villa (and the Lodge, if you wish) belong to you, exclusively.

Set in 44 hectares of PRIVATE drop-dead, gorgeous countryside, all private, ALL YOURS, Wifi throughout the villa and SKY TV, I can assure you there is nothing that can even begin to compete with this extremely spacious villa + Lodge in the area.

And, with the fairy tale, mediaeval, walled city of Spoleto, a city that predates Rome, just 10 - 20 mins drive away, Assisi, Perugia, Orvieto, Montefalco and Gubbio, all within easy reach, and, Rome, a mere 1 hr 15 mins drive (or, by train, from Spoleto station), this heavenly abode is an out and out winner!

The rate includes utilities, linens, towels, taxes + welcome toiletries......BUT :

PLEASE NOTE :

BETWEEN NOVEMBER 1 AND APRIL 31, THERE WILL BE AN EXTRA CHARGE FOR THE USE OF CENTRAL HEATING - PLEASE ENQUIRE RE FURTHER DETAILS.

I arrived here 30 odd years ago, fell in love with the place, my 1st spiritual home. Couldn't wait to move here permanently. Did so. With 2nd husband. Ist husband declined. Was persuaded to rent to someone, whose violinist daughter was performing in a Spoleto festival because she couldn't find anywhere to stay.....and, we happened to be holidaying in Sydney. That's how it started. 15 years ago (at time of writing, 2018). We bought more property here. Our estate agent saw what we were doing. She joined up with us. The person we bought property from saw what we were doing. He joined up with us. Suddenly we were in the holiday rental business, for real ! Sydney lost its appeal as we started to introduce potential guests to the beautiful properties that our small partnership group offers, about 50 in all....apartments, villas and pool properties. It is such a joyful experience to be able to offer people the holiday of a lifetime. Never having been in business before, both of us retired academics, we wished we'd done this all our lives. However, our hard-nosed business friends describe our activity as merely a life-style. "You should charge for this, charge for that, the euros add up", they say. But money is not our goal. Your happiness is.
